Interpersonal Skill Development: The Experiential Training Unit (ETU) and Transfer of Training.
Certo, Samuel C.; Newgren, Kenneth E.
This paper proposes that interpersonal skills be developed through the use of a skill/subskill strategy which is effected by means of an Experiential Training Unit (ETU), or series of sequential training activities. Specifically, ETU training activities focus on the development of several skills: cognitive, transformation, activation, preliminary diagnostic, and advanced diagnostic. An exercise, "Manager as Helper," is described, in order to illustrate the application of these principles. Transfer-of-training principles are described, which will increase the effectiveness of design and administration of ETUs. In addition, a diagrammatic illustration compares the sequencing of learning activities in this paradigm, the Certo-Dougherty experiential learning model, with the sequencing of activities in the Kolb experiential learning model.
